Guide Review - Venus DVD Review
Ian quickly writes off Jessie (Jodie Whittaker) as hopeless, but Maurice detects something special about her. Maurice takes her under his wig and teaches her about the arts. While Maurice is imparting knowledge on Jessie, she's also surprisingly teaching him a thing or two about life.
The Bonus Features
Director Roger Michell and producer Kevin Loader offer insight into the making of Venus in a commentary track that's dry yet informative. Also included on the Venus DVD is a Making Of featurette worth checking out. Listening to legendary actor O'Toole talk about the film is worth the price of the DVD.
